    I like to mug old ladies, embezzle my employers funds and carry out mindless acts of vanadalism- especially against popular local icons

    gym 3 times a week for weight training, watch the odd game of football, support Sunderland, but we won't discuss that after saturday's result. :oops: :cry: Reading,gardening and surfing the 'net.

    what about the 7 results prior to that!?
    (stupidly I backed (fantasy footy) Keane to have a good season, they're not breaking any pots are they!!).
  • Photography, ice hockey, playing one of my (too?) many guitars, playing games consoles...that's about it apart from work!

    I used to run a lot, but that has wained recently due to an injury. But now I need to do a lot more as I found out this morning that I got accepted to run the London marathon.

    So apart from that I look after the boy and gf, play on the Wii, watch a bit of football but spend most of my time working :shock:

  • <ALERT! THREAD HIJACK ALERT!>

    On the subject of other hobbies, <tenuous link> I'm having difficulty in choosing a new guitar amp (to fill a small hall/pub)
    Having owned a Laney VC15 a while back which was pretty cool, I quite like the idea of a VC30 2x12. But, the lure of a marshall DSL401 is as strong a pull, as I'm afraid I have no musical imagination whatsoever so am a sucker for that cliche that is the marshall sound. Anyone else have a view?

  • I am a dynamic figure, often seen scaling walls and crushing ice. I have been known to remodel train stations on my lunch breaks, making them more efficient in the area of heat retention. I translate ethnic slurs for Cuban refugees, I write award-winning operas, I manage time efficiently. Occasionally, I tread water for three days in a row.

    I woo women with my sensuous and godlike trombone playing, I can pilot bicycles up severe inclines with unflagging speed, and I cook Thirty-Minute Brownies in twenty minutes. I am an expert in stucco, a veteran in love, and an outlaw in Peru.

    Using only a hoe and a large glass of water, I once single-handedly defended a small village in the Amazon Basin from a horde of ferocious army ants. I play bluegrass cello, I was scouted by the Mets, I am the subject of numerous documentaries. When I'm bored, I build large suspension bridges in my yard. I enjoy urban hang gliding. On Wednesdays, after school, I repair electrical appliances free of charge.

    I am an abstract artist, a concrete analyst, and a ruthless bookie. Critics worldwide swoon over my original line of corduroy evening wear. I don't perspire. I am a private citizen, yet I receive fan mail. Last summer I toured New Jersey with a travelling centrifugal-force demonstration. I bat .400. My deft floral arrangements have earned me fame in international botany circles. Children trust me.

    I can hurl tennis rackets at small moving objects with deadly accuracy. I once read Paradise Lost, Moby censored , and David Copperfield in one day and still had time to refurbish an entire dining room that evening. I know the exact location of every food item in the supermarket. I have performed covert operations for the CIA. I sleep once a week; when I do sleep, I sleep in a chair. While on vacation in Canada, I successfully negotiated with a group of terrorists who had seized a small bakery. The laws of physics do not apply to me.

    I balance, I weave, I dodge, I frolic, and my bills are all paid. On weekends, to let off steam, I participate in full-contact origami. Years ago I discovered the meaning of life but forgot to write it down. I have made extraordinary four course meals using only a spoon and a toaster oven. I breed prizewinning clams. I have won bullfights in San Juan, cliff-diving competitions in Sri Lanka, and spelling bees at the Kremlin. I have played Hamlet, I have performed open-heart surgery, and I have spoken with Elvis.

  • Badminton, golf, ski-ing when I can afford it, being a dad to a 3 month old boy (most tiring of all!).

    Cars & beer (not at the same time). Buying , drinking & collecting wine.
